Do you use some kind of 3d scanning?

I also wonder how so much detail was obtained... incredible.

They're truly beastly, never felt a PSU like it before (even when compared with my old AX1200)

I have a NZXT psu that uses that C19 connection. Finding the replacement plug I wanted at a decent price to make my own power cord took me weeks. (I still haven't made the cord yet. blushsmiley.gif )

Yeah I had been looking at it thinking it might prove troublesome. Out of curiosity, where did you find the replacement plug?

Haha thanks, funnily enough it's all through simply measuring with a set of digital vernier calipers. The closest to scanning I've used is simply photographing things to make textures. It's a fair bit of work, but not particularly difficult.

UPDATE!


 
 
So I thought I'd share some of the stuff that's been going on today.  The plan is to make a monoblock for the Asus X99E-WS that will cool everything important on the board.  The stock heatsinks are beautiful, but apparently the PLX chips can get a little toasty when using 4 GPUs, which we will be doing.  According to some users in the owner's thread they've experienced random crashes when the chips get too hot.  The solution is just provide a bit of airflow, which is very easy in a normal case.  However, since this is open faced, I can't guarantee that will always be available.  That and we thought it would be cool.
 
Here's the lower section thus far:

so you model each individual cap, resistor, socket, etc... and model them individually? then go back and apply the appropriate textures? seems like soooooo much work.

It's actually not quite as laborious as it sounds really. Many components on a motherboard are duplicates (like the capacitors or PCIe slots) so you only need to model a single instance. For texturing, Blender has a lot of useful tools that make it a simple process. Cycles is a node based renderer, so it's pretty easy to construct fairly complex materials. Almost all the actual textures themselves come from just two pictures I took, one of the front and one of the back of the motherboard. The pictures are 24mp each so there are a lot of pixels available to play with. The same can be said for the PSU regarding textures, I just took photos of the relevant sides.

To measure where each component goes individually seems like it would take me hours on end, let alone model it. What 3D modeler are you using? Anyways sorry for the tangent... it looks great!
